Analysis of the poem "The truly great" by Stephen Spender

"The Truly Great", a treatise on greatness.
(Poem written by Stephen Spender)
This poem, broadly, is an attempt to describe what makes a person "truly" great. The poem was written in the 1930's during wartime, this no doubt influenced the poet. However, soldiers are not the only people he is referring to. He is essentially referring to anyone who selflessly fights for what they believe in.

Who, from the womb, remembered the soul's history
